In my senior year of high school, I started to miss school frequently and avoid schoolwork because the idea of going to college or university the next year and not even being sure what I wanted to take yet was causing me a lot of stress. I believed that my only options were to go to college or just take a regular gap year and stay working. Luckily my school held a college night where different colleges and programs would talk with students that were still undecided. At this college night, I learned about discover year for the first time and was quickly convinced that this was my ideal choice for the next year. Over the past year, I have learned so many skills and information related to school, work, and life as a whole. I discovered what path I wanted to take in school and could not be happier with the feeling of assurance that came from making that decision. I credit a lot of my personal growth to being in this program and the amazing people that helped me along the way.
